JP Gear still can't qualify you for LFR.
Now the only other way to make up for missing slots--honor gear--has been taken away too.
I guess I'll just craft so... no wait I won't.
JP gear was never meant to qualify you for LFR thats what heroic gear plus the rep gear is for. Same thing at the start of every xpac.
You mean the rep gear that requires over a month to access?
